The Life of Mozart

Perry Keenlyside

This is the poignant and compelling story of perhaps the most naturally gifted musical genius of all time. Copiously illustrated with examples of his music, it tells of Mozart’s extraordinary childhood travelling the courts of Europe, and of how, after a brief period of fame in Vienna, his fortunes declined until his early death and last resting-place in a pauper’s grave. More than 70 excerpts from the symphonies, operas, concertos and chamber music of Mozart.
